New Tourism Exhibit Featured in Georgia Connector Magazine

We are excited to have our new exhibit Seeing Georgia: Changing Visions of Tourism in the Modern South featured as the cover story in this month's Georgia Connector Magazine! Click HERE to give it a read.

The story tells readers a bit about the exhibit - our process for developing the topic and getting into the research. There are fantastic quotes from our summer intern, Kaylynn Washnock, who acted as co-curator on the project, as well as our volunteer Bill Hugunine who has been searching through the collections for items to display for more than a year. And finally, there is also a great side piece that focuses on the amazing private collectors who we worked with to borrow items for the display, notably Gary Doster, Ed Jackson, and William Walker.

We hope you'll give the article a read and come and check out the finished product at our opening on September 18th! In the meantime, keep up with Kaylynn's series here on the blog - new installments coming next week. And, follow us on Facebook and Twitter for more sneak peek photos of the exhibit during installation.
